i am not what i used to be... by ~JPacena has soft edges and tones that bleed a little, adding a quality of weathering and subtlety to a rather interesting and asymmetrically balanced work. ( Suggested by AnneJulieAubry and Featured by zeruch )

Love the abstract style. You've struck a perfect balance with the shapes and colors. I think the title and the idea behind it are what really give it depth and make it more than just a nice picture. :invisible:

Very strong piece, both visually and otherwise. I love the thought behind "creating an identity" because we all do it to some extent - aided and abetted by the internet of course. Maybe now all I need is an identity to feel like a queen. lol. I'll be thinking of that throughout the day.
Anyway, great piece, in case I didn't say that enough yet. :D Thanks! :+fav:

man. i saw this first thing this morning just before having to jet for work.
and i meant to come back to it during work and faving the hell out of it.
but i sidetracked. by stupid WORK!
anyway,..
i love it man.
i love the colors. i love the linework. i love the overall composition.
it's a bit mckean-like to me. wolves in the walls maybe?
going to your gallery now in hopes that more visual treasures await me there.
put you on my watch too.
truly dig it man.
wish i could see things and convey it visually like this.
very nice.

When I paint, I don't really put meaning behind it. I just kind of go into this zone, and a few hours later I'm done. Props to you for knowing exactly what you were doing with this. It really shows.

"creating an identity where in you feel like a king" - that happens a lot to manic depressives. i really relate to this... also, i love the colours :)
